In our newest weekly feature, we’re bringing some of the best fan made video content related to GTA 5 produced in the past 7 days, every Sunday.
Amid all of the fake leak videos, “funny” moments compilations and the several 3-5 minute videos per day uploaded by the same person where they dissect some rumor over and over again by reading up forum posts made by others, you probably don’t have the time or patience to sift through all the crap to find the good GTA 5 videos out there – but don’t worry, we’ll do it for you!
Last week we brought you a fan-made dedication to the Midnight Club, a pretty damn impressive stunt video done with a jet, a showcase of the Liberty City map from GTA IV running on V’s engine, a well directed and at times humorous short-film depicting the pacific standard heist and finally a bit of tech support showing how to solve a stutter issue on the PC versions of the game. This week, we’re bringing you good old detective work, GTA 5 Redux, pirate fun and peace.
LS Detectives Intro (Magnum P.I) – Dingledorf
While we’ve covered a full-on Rockstar Editor recreation of the Magnum P.I. intro, this here is a bit more liberal with the source material. Dingledorf’s LS Detectives is more of a tribute to Magnum P.I. rather than a proper remake, however it catches the look and feel of the retro series in all of its glory. The intro actually works as an intro, as Dingledorf continues with the actual “series” in other videos.
GTA 5 – PIRATE INSANITY! with REBL GTA Crew – Liamcal
Before you heave at the title, yes, this pretty is just some guy recording his gameplay while in Online. That said, this isn’t one of your no-effort and cringe-worthy “funny moments” videos. REBL is a pretty well renowned GTA Online group which organised a pirate-themed lobby recently where players were encouraged to play in a pirate-y way. This mean using boats, ships and yachts as battlefields and relying mainly on the musket as a weapon. Yarr!
Violence Simulator – Grand Theft Auto V (V2) – iLoveYourFace
The title of the video is poking fun at the concept that GTA is actually just a “violence simulator” with no redeeming qualities. The video itself focuses on the calm, non-violent everyday happenings across the game. Videos like this go to prove just how much effort Rockstar Games put into making the world of Los Santos and Blaine Country feel truly alive and vibrant. It also shows off just how active the world is instead of reactive – things happen without player intervention all over the place.
GTA V Redux Mod: 12 Reshaders Compared – Saracen Gaming
GTA 5 Redux, a massive overhaul mod we’ve covered on this site, was recently released. The mod packs 15 different reshade presets from which players can pick and choose. If you’d rather know in advance what it is you’re getting, you can check out this video for a comparison of 12 of those reshaders, making selection much easier for you.
